To multiply the normal hourly rate of a shift, a new comment should be added beneath the shift with an x followed by the rate multiplier (e.g. x 1.5 or x 2). As an example, to pay your employees double their normal rate, you would enter the comment x 2 beneath their shift.

To change the hourly rate of the shift, a new comment should be added beneath the shift with an x followed by the new hourly rate, including the currency symbol. As an example, x $10 will pay your employees $10 per hour during the shift directly above. Be careful not to forget the currency symbol or their pay will be multiplied instead.

To apply a pre-existing pay rate exception, a new comment should be added beneath the shift with an x followed by the rate exception description (or code). As an example, x Double will apply the pay rate exception with the description (or code) of Double to the shift directly above.

To apply a fixed amount to the entire shift (regardless of the amount of hours worked), a new comment should be added beneath the shift with an = followed by the amount you are paying. As an example, applying = $200 beneath a 4 hour shift will set the shift's hourly rate to $50.
